  • New Zealand finally uproot Joe

    Joe Root was finally dismissed on the fourth morning at Grace Road, but not before taking his season tally 646 runs

  • Southee provides injury concern

    Tim Southee has emerged as an injury concern ahead of the opening Test at Lord's next week after picking up a foot injury against England Lions

  • Southee worry amid Lions dominance

    James Taylor missed the chance to further bolster his impressive England Lions record when he fell cheaply on a rain-ruined day

  • Root hundred strikes pre-Test blow
